Apparel brand Fruit of the Loom is reacquainting itself with younger generations by doubling down on the bold, rich colors it has become known for.

Adopting a humorous and relatable identity, the GSD&M-devised campaign takes the form of a series of vignettes, each more colorful than the last, to showcase a different ‘Fruitism’ – a pithy observation on how your choice of fashion can make all the difference in life.
